OTTAWA — Sen. Patrick Brazeau's next court date for his sexual assault case has been pushed to Feb. 14.
His lawyers asked for his trial to be delayed because of health issues.
Quebec Crown attorney Sylvain Petitclerc told reporters he wouldn't elaborate on the details of the health problems that slowed down the legal proceedings.
In July, Brazeau's legal team was granted an extension after a last-minute request for the Crown to hand over more evidence.
Last February, Brazeau pleaded not guilty to assault and sexual assault after police were called to his house in Gatineau, Que., because of a disturbance.
Brazeau is out on bail, has been removed from the Conservative caucus and is on a forced paid leave of absence from the upper chamber.
The Quebec senator is also facing an ongoing RCMP investigation into inappropriate housing expense claims.
